came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is the president's response. >> obama: governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where plan

think romney did about as well as he did last time around. he made his point. obama clearly had a good night, a much better night than the first night. you know, woody allen said showing up is 80% of life. he was at the 80%. i think on points, if you were scoring it's on points, obama wins on points. and he made a lot of counter punches. a lot of accusations. he managed to get under romney's skin a little bit by referring to his wealth. he made $20 million a year trying to make $1 million by taxes but it's a way to say you're a rich guy. how will you understand the ordinary guy? i thought there is a point where romney did really well. and all of us agree that was on the issue on the failure of this administration. when romney went large, it did well. when he went small, i think obama got the better of him. there is one critical issue in this debate. the libya question. obama was at sea. he was asked about the security in libya, and benghazi. he didn't try to answer because he had no answer. instead he went on about how we're going to catch these guys. romney, i think had a huge opening

's hardball and the chris matthew show. that romney was not predictable. he came in so strong and so in charge that he basically took over the room and i felt he was sufficient in that stage, meaning the president didn't need to be there for romney to put on that show and jim lehrer didn't need to be there, it was a romney control of that space and that physical control of that space which was so dominant. i don't think we have seen anything like it before. and in probably a presidential debate. >> rose: we continue request mark halperin of time magazine and benjamin brafman, a leading trial attorney. the mitt romney was on display last night is the one that his friends and family and a few journalists who have had access to him over the years have seen before. that guy can win this race. the question is, can jesus stain it beyond one night. >> in any number of areas what governor romney has done as he said laid, said last night he laid out the broad principles but now you have gotten specific about the good parts, the carrot youill and very vague about the stick. >> obama is brilliant in a s
